About 1 month ago our area had 10 inches of rain and considering what all the area golf courses had to go through, the course was in good shape. There were some wet spots but nothing to concerning. The greens were the best rolling and truest greens I putted on all year long and that's saying a lot because we have a lot of courses in this area. We saved $10 off 18 holes in the cart by using this app and went at 6:45 a.m. I would go again if the savings were right and would recommend this course to a friend.

They remodeled and changed the routes of four holes. They look and play great. The greens for the entire course are in excellent condition and most of the course is in very good shape. The remodeled holes were just opened and have some thin spots in the fairways. There are plans to over seed parts of the course this fall and that should fill in the thin spots. This course is over 100 years old so it is walkable and not very long, but it is very tight in spots with many tall and older hardwood trees that provide a challenge if you don't hit it straight.

I come up to see my son and play golf a few times during the summer. We have played Forest Hills a few times and the course is always in great shape and the holes changes have turned out great!

We will definitely be coming back next month to play again!

Great course and the staff are very friendly. Played it twice this year, the first time the entire course wasn't open due to a "remodeling" to accommodate the trains coming through. Yesterday, played the complete 18 with the new holes. The entire course is beautiful and the new holes blended in well. You need to hit em straight here!

Thought this was a neat place to play. The front nine is pretty forgiving, it is fairly flat and not too tuff. The uniqueness of the couse is in the hilly back nine that is jambed up against the cliffs. The fairways get narrower and less straight. The par threes are hill to hill shots that are not very forgiving. The staff was great and the pace of play was good. The ranger kept things moveing.
